Surfboard Rego

Posted: April 12, 2012 at 10:12 am

Ever  wonder why Clubbies and Surfers have had a long going  rivalry. Back in 1965 Councils enforced surfboard registration at City beaches. Riders had to pay a fee to use their surfboards at the beach. Without an official rego sticker the Clubbies would confiscate your board.This along with early rules of compulsory membership to the clubs for all surfers and putting the flags on the best banks developed conflict and often bad vibes back in the longboard days. That rivalry still exists at some beaches even today.
